the digital3mpire was and is always changing. as a hybrid dynamic and fluid entity, it is continually reinventing itself.
at the beginning, the physical space and the shows there were the central location and part of the platform.
In the course of the last few years this has changed, the focus of the activity is now on the network.
And so in addition to the gallery and the cooperation projects, the NFT label to explore the blockchains was added to the digital3mpire.
When I was assembling my collages on my computer about 15 years ago, it was always clear to me that these pictures on the screen were the original ones.
The material from the internet, the tools aka the software and the final form as a file, all of that was always digital and it was always original.
Then printing out the pictures to bring them to the whitcube always seemed strange to me. and so i built this frame out of wood and adhesive tape with a screen and a mac mini in it, so that the visitors in the exhibition room also had the opportunity to see the original pictures on the screen.
Now that #NFTs are just gaining ground, this perspective is finally becoming a universal reality and that's why I'm celebrating this development so much. A remarkable coincidence: the picture was taken 2006 in the art space b-l-a-s-t, where the gallery Falko Alexander is today.
PS you can still dowload the original from spectaculartakeoverbattle.de
Just one year ago people thought watt kind of funny joke i did with this piece at Gallery Falko Alexander.
Realities and mindsets changing pretty fast these days.

The worse things seem to be in the market, the better the opportunities are for profit is the credo for contrarian investing. Baron Rothschild, an 18th century British nobleman and member of the Rothschild banking family, is credited with saying that "the time to buy is when there's blood in the streets." He should know. Rothschild made a fortune buying in the panic that followed the Battle of Waterloo against Napoleon. But that's not the whole story. The original quote is believed to be "Buy when there's blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own."
Christopher Carter wrote on ÆQAIa Cincinnati-based e-journal for critical thinking about Birgit Jensen’s Flugblätter at Clay Street Press Gallery
"At the risk of violating Kuhlmann’s directive against signs, the molding of negative space may be the profoundest image of the show, and the shrewdest statement of the contributors’ collaborative accomplishment."
A whole week of THE WRONG council meeting.

My horde of trolls is an ongoing twitter experiment about bots, trolling and (anti)social behaviour in the privatepublic internetspace. a horde of autonomous troll-bots following my accounts, reacting to my tweets, mostly in a harsh and rude way. insulting me, laughing about me, talking about my tweets, behaving nasty and unkind.

On February 5, 2016 the Link Art Center launched Dadaclub.online, an online archive and creative platform meant to celebrate the dada legacy in the centenary of dada’s birth, that took place in Zurich on February 5, 1916. For a year, Dadaclub.online has been a place for uninterrupted experimentation, promoting the creative reuse of digital copies of original dada artworks. On the platform, around 148 artworks have been published so far, and visited around 250,000 times.
